The other day my brother came home with this from a customer, and it's starting again. This Polish lady is one of the best bakers I have ever received from. It's a sort of pound cake, with some - but not too much! - fruit inside. and decorated so just right.
Last year she gave him a gingerbread cake - rectangular, sliced horizontally with peach or apricot jam inside. A chocolate ganache over all, and sliced almonds pressed into the bottom. I haven't forgotten it! I've been wanting to replicate it ever since. She could really open a bakery.
You can bet we're making short work of this.
